Four of Cape Town’s funniest stand-up comedians take to the Artscape Arena stage on 14-15 June at 19:30 for the Artscape Theatre Youth Comedy Festival.This year’s festival will be hosted by Ambrose Uren, well-known comedian, dancer and actor best known for his television role in Montana I and II.
It will feature four of the funniest local comedians, from up-and-coming to professional, including the likes of Eureka Nkese, one of SA’s rising comedy stars on-stage and on-screen. His style of comedy has been described as topical and observational, poking fun at everyday life making his material relatable to a diverse audience), Phil de Lange, who has performed in the top comedy venues in South Africa and Germany and was recently chosen to perform alongside Trevor Noah in the NationWild 2018 showcase. Phil’s style is to deliver awkward, self-deprecating and tongue-in-cheek-style humour to the audience. Lindy Johnson is a newcomer from Paarl who won the Savanna “Show us your Apples” Open Mic 2017 showdown and has already started making her mark, having performed at the Cape Town Comedy Club, Rocking the Daisies 2016 and the Jive Cape Town Funny Festival 2017.
